“It’s important to remember that everything is connected between the mind and the body. You can eat all that organic food and do all that yoga but if you’re angry or stressed, much of the goodness goes to waste. ”

A while back I posted a recipe for an Oven Pancake, and after feeding my WAP pal, Chad, the other week, he was inspired to try one on his own today! The pancake I made him was with almond flour, but he decided to give it a whirl with some buckwheat flour and had tremendous success! He used a 1/4 tsp. of baking powder to help it rise (my recipe doesn’t use it because most baking powder has corn starch in it, and I worry about GMOs and my mom is allergic, but you can find corn free if you try!), honey for sweetener, and blackberries and blueberries.  Yum!

Have you tried to make anything on the blog, or have a WAP recipe to share? I’d love to hear about it!

Lyla Evajane

Lyla Evajane

I am so happy to announce the arrival of Lyla Evajane! Born April 5, 2013 at 6:51am she weighed a healthy 7lbs. 4 oz.

Lyla is such a special little girl in my life. Not only is she the first child of my dear friend Meghan, but she is also the first Weston A. Price baby of my group of friends. In a sense, Meghan’s pregnancy and Lyla’s healthful existence, was an example for me of an ideal pregnancy and prenatal diet.

Meghan drank plenty of raw milk, ate cod liver, butter, liver, and all nutrient dense foods. She was a mother-to-be rockstar! She delivered at the hospital in her own private room with a midwife and will not be vaccinating her wee one.

I am so excited to see how this beautiful baby grows big and strong, and hope that Meghan will be able to teach and inspire me to be a Weston A. Price mommy!

Congrats, Megs! xoxoxo
